"Spotlight: Poetical Composition" is a display that focuses solely on the content of the poem or song being highlighted. Within the display the titles, authors, bibliography and any background information for each display panel are only available by viewing this LibGuide. By not identifying the poem or song the display planning group is asking the public to focus on the text that is provided. Ask yourself: Does knowing the background of a poem or song change what you, the reader, feel about the piece? Are you so distracted by trying to guess the background information about the piece that you cannot enjoy the piece?
The UI Cultural Houses and Resource Center managed by the Office of Student Life are fundamental in bringing to light issues that are important to African Americans, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, Latinos and Native Americans and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender community. The “Spotlight Series” displays are meant to connect the library to the UI cultural houses and resource center. We encourage the UI community to explore the people and organizations represented in this display.
